Branching Out

Yeah! I have finished my first project for the "One-A-Month Challenge!" I have been carrying this project around for at least 4 years! I really don't know why it has taken me so long to complete it because it is not difficult. So here it is:

I know that it is strange that my first project of the New Year is a Christmas quilt but I really wanted to get it completed! At least it will be ready for next Christmas.

I usually do one of two quilting motifs: overlapping swirls or free form flowers. As you know, I don't stipple because I am not that good at it. Don't ask me why but I just can't the motion correct and it winds up looking like crazy lines.

So this time Jana (my middle aged Janome sewing machine) and I decided to do something different: free-form stars.

It feels really good to have completed this quilt and I had fun "branching out" with my quilting motif! Now I have this completed pile of 2009 quilts!

On to the next project! Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!
